Gravity mapping

ESA: Gravity mapping satellite is nearing end of mission

The Moho and lithosphere for the northeast Atlantic captured by GOCE data.

ESA's Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) mission will end this year. It has begun its decent towards Earth and will be reentering our atmosphere probably in mid-October. Having nearly tripled its planned lifetime, this Gravity field and steady-state mission has successfully mapped variations in Earth’s gravity with extreme detail.
